Vote Now For London’s Restaurant Design of the Year [Poll Closed]

Which new site had the most jaw-dropping design in 2017?

Hoi Polloi is beautifully designed but not nominated because it is not new
| Official

Welcome to day three of London’s inaugural participation in the annual Eater Awards, honouring the most talented restaurant and bar industry operators in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year.

In each category, editors choose an ‘editor’s choice’ winner and readers will vote for a ‘reader’s choice’ winner — all to be announced on 5 December, 2017. Editor’s choice winners will receive the much sought-after tomato can trophy, per tradition. This year Eater will extend the awards coverage, running in-depth features about each editor’s choice winner throughout 2018. Stay tuned.

Now, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Design of the Year category. Polls will be open for 24 hours and — again — will be strictly monitored for any attempts at impropriety.

The choice is between a Modern European restaurant by way of Hong Kong inside the Mandrake Hotel; a neo-bistro/new wave wine bar on Hackney Road; team BAO’s Taiwanese fine-dining follow-up; Juan Santa Cruz’s celeb-favourite Mayfair haunt; or the Britalian second site from the trio behind The Clove Club.
